Markelle Fultz's trainer Drew Hanlen gives reason for poor jumper in now-deleted tweet


#NBATwitter is so crazy that now even trainers have beef. This time, however, Drew Hanlen, who has worked extensively with Markelle Fultz, may have let some information slip.

In a now-deleted tweet, Hanlen, the CEO of Pure Sweat as a coach and consultant for a roster of NBA players, admitted that Fultz may still not be completely healthy, despite playing an average of more than 24 minutes per game this season.

Hanlen, in response to Clint Parks, who operates CPSA Training, with one of his clients being the Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma, let some interesting information fly when Parks criticized Fultz during the game against the Nets.

Here’s the exchange that has now been deleted from Twitter, but lives on through screenshots.

Fultz has had an up-and-down season and logged more playing time in a busy early schedule than he’s used to, which could be affecting his game, but still not healthy? That's news to us. The team hasn't said anything regarding Fultz's health and he's not currently listed on the injury report.

While this is another case of just how crazy the NBA gets on Twitter, we deserve to know if Fultz is 100 percent if we are going to judge him appropriately. It’s only fair to him, too.
